Hi Guix,

An unfortunate chain of propagated-inputs causes 'util-linux' (mount,
umount, etc.) to be installed alongside 'mps-youtube': 'mps-youtube'
propagates 'python-pygobject', which propagates 'glib', which propagates
'util-linux'.  It seems to have been introduced with commit 6c237a2,
when 'util-linux' was moved to the propagated-inputs of 'glib'.

This is a problem on foreign distributions, where the stowaway 'mount'
and 'umount' commands installed by Guix shadow the setuid ones provided
by the distro.

I am currently on commit ecf3a3a (post core-updates merge).

I opted for a more conventional "lib" output and pushed the patch to the
'core-updates' branch in bb93042c8beb881ab907fa802eefb3c4091039a2.
